In the UK, there has been a rapid increase in the reclassification of prescription only medicines ( POMs) to pharmacy only ( P) and general sales list (GSL) status. This means that community pharmacy staff have a greater range of non-prescription medicines to recommend for the treatment of minor illness. Strategies are needed to promote good professional practice in the supply of non-prescription medicines. Guidelines have been shown to promote quality of care in other health care settings.
